Wednesdays Question

It's Wednesday so that means it's question time. It's time to ponder and then answer just one question. Okay, you can add all you want as a reason for your answer too. We'd all like that. I'll even answer my own question as that's only fair.

So here's this weeks question: Who has been the biggest influence on your life? What lessons did that person teach you?
There have been two. My mother that taught me about love and consequences and my hubby that taught me the virtues of loyalty. Hubby is loyal beyond words.

  1. I would have to say that the person who was the biggest influence was my dad. One lesson that comes to mind has to do with hate. I can remember as a young teen saying I hated someone and my dad told me you should never hate. You don't have to like someone very much but never hate them.

    1. Hate is a destructive emotion indeed. Your dad was very wise. :)

  2. There are so many, how do i choose one? My father, who taught me hard work and how to be tactful and get along with just about anyone comes to mind, but he's the first of a long list.

  3. I would not want to choose just one person as I have learned many lessons from many people - some good, some not-so-good but wach one equally as important and valuable and part of the sum. I would not be who I am without any one of them.

    Hsve a brilliant day, honey. Say hello to Zane! big hugs xoxo

  5. I guess my father was the most influence on me. He taught me a lot. Other than that, I can't think of anyone else. Good question though Sandee. Hope you have a great day.

  8. There were so many people that made me the way I am. My French teacher, Gloria Sibue, she would spend time after school helping me to be able to pass French even though she had cancer and should have rested after school, my parents and especially my wife Mary Lou. She has taught me to handle life, be strong and she know what to do in times of difficulties. Without her I don't know what I what do. God sent me a beautiful woman who has the strength of Wonder Woman. See ya.

  9. The person who has been the biggest influence on my life is Christ. The peerson who has had the second biggest influence on my life was my father. By example, dad taught me how to be a man, a husband, a friend, a father, and a grandfather. He taught me the value of work. In his final days, he taught me how to die with dignity. I am forever thankful to God for placing my father in my life.

  10. Many people have influenced me both good and bad. It'd be tough to decide who had the biggest influence but probably my grandma who taught me unconditional love.

    Happy Wednesday! Scritches to Little Bit!

  11. I don't know if I can narrow it to just one person. I learn from everyone in my life because we are always learning and growing as humans. I have learned so much. I could say I am a big influence, it is my heart and soul and dreams that I follow most often. It is my mistakes that I learn from and fear repeating. I try to live a life that others would be proud of, honest, caring, devoted. I can also say that my daughter has been a big influence. She has shaped the last 4+ years of my life and taught me that I cannot be selfish and that all decisions, thoughts and purpose must also include her well being and... I WOULDN"T CHANGE IT FOR THE WORLD! <3

  13. My mother taught me right from wrong, that it's much easier to tell the truth than try to remember the lie you told, what words to NEVER say let alone think, not to judge people based on appearances, to mind my manners and to always be kind .
    My sweetie pie ( like Sandee's hubby ) has taught me patience and loyalty. He's one of a kind and I am a lucky woman.

    1. You had a great mother. Appearances can be so deceiving indeed.

  14. My father. Days before his death, I spent a night holding his hand telling him it was ok to go. That moment in my life was pitvotal. One of my paradigm shifts. At that moment he taught me that Life is too short, and that much of what we think matters really doesn't in the grand scheme of things. Maybe that's the "growing up" one does when their last remianing parent goes. For me it's the moment when I project myself into his spot at that time and ask myself, "at this point would it really matter?".

  15. My parents & my maternal grandmother for my everyday life lessons; teachers and professors along the way whose lessons remain with my to this day. I've been lucky to have so many influential people in my life that helped me become the woman that I eventually became.
